Bottle shared by the soaking wet Chudwick. This is an odd one. I thought it was very similar to a barley wine. It is different fo sho.

Bomber - I like bipaís but this was off. The bitterness was too prominent. Odd.

Poured a dark brown with a cream head. Aroma is pine hops with caramel, toasted, and chocolate malts. Flavor is toasted and chocolated malts with a nutty character, along with citrus and simcoe hop elements. Medium to full bodied with a medium carbonation and a bitter hoppy resinous mouthfeel amd a nutty malt finish.

22 oz bottle. Pours a dark brown that has some great amber hues when held up to light. Big two finger, super creamy looking khaki head that leaves a lot of lacing. Aroma of toasted malts, caramel, hazelnut, biscuit, chocolate, and of course hoppy citrus. Taste is toasty caramel malts up front with a nice nuttiness and a strong showing of citrus and piney hops. Also picking up chocolate and biscuit underneath it all, even a hint of spices on the back end. Hops arenít particularly bitter but certainly present. I am also getting a bit of a warming feel going that is usually only present in higher ABV beers. Certainly canít taste the alcohol in this, but you feel it. Good but slightly quick finish of malt, caramel and citrus. Leaves a nice lingering aftertaste of toasted caramel malts and nuttiness. Medium bodied, texture is slick but ultimately a little too thin, average to lively carbonation. This would make a helluva good brown ale on itís own. Iím just wishing that the hops were a little more pronounced in the taste. Theyíre certainly there and you definitely taste them, but the brown ale is the more dominating taste here.

tmoreau (2820) - Lombard, Illinois, USA - FEB 25, 2015
On tap at Lunar Brewing Co., and snifter served displaying a clear, deep mahogany hue, with a presentable hat of tan froth, and lacing that was a combination of doily-like ribbons & spots. The nose started malty, a bit toasted & roasted, with a hint of woodiness?, then citrus, a touch of dark/dried fruit, some lurking alcohol, and sweetened by a combination of caramel & toffee. Medium+ bodied, with modest carbonation, the taste showed more alcohol influence, and added a moderately strong, earthy, resinous, and rind-like bitterness that lingered well into the finish. Flavorful and well balanced.

rader58 (815) - Leawood, Kansas, USA - FEB 19, 2015
22oz bottle. Pours clear, dark ruby. Aroma of citrus, caramel, spruce, dried fruits. Flavor is caramel, cherry juice, citrus, pine, brown sugar. Like a slightly sweetened IPA. A nice complexity to the lowering of bitterness, but a sweetened malt coming through.

This is good brown ale but instead of the sweetness on the back end you get IPA spices, and a nice 8.3%, highly wrecked-omended.

draft, brown, just a solid brown hoppy ale, good grassy bitter brown ale, interesting. I would call this a brown ale.
